Thanks for the link BuckGodot.
Don't know how I missed that one!
I understand why Stardock did what they did, but as most people said - not really an optimal solution.
I run Insane maps set at Abundant everything with a customized race, all the other races, & lots of minor races. Never had a problem. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones.
I'll check out your fix to see what I missed!
